Abstract

The exegesis of the 12th century will be content of this session. The scholars we will talk about belong more or less to the school of St Victor. The session will address questions like: What was the theory behind the 12th-century exegesis? What kind of sources did they use? What was the relationship between the translation of the biblical text and exegesis? What kind of knowledge did the exegetes of the 12th century have and how did they use it?
